The visitor arrives and comes face to face with himself, his double. Although it is less detailed and realistic, his double looks exactly like him. The visitor recognises himself in this reflection.

However, when he looks more closely, he discovers something strange. Composed of multitudes of particles, his body is animated by invisible forces.

He starts to feel surprised by his own appearance. His silhouette vibrates, swells up and becomes distorted.
